More fun with webparts

Within Vista you can have a weather gadget in your sidebar. It turns out you can use the “webservices” of this MSN service for “free”. ( It uses an url “http://weather.service.msn.com/data.aspx?src=vista&weadegreetype=C&culture=en-US&wealocations={0}” to retreive the weather data.

So I created this ajax style webpart that you can use in your portal/mysite to display the current weather at a location of your choice.

Vista Sidebar MOSS 2007 Webpart

As you can see, the weather isn’t that great here right now 🙂

This webpart will be released with the Flickr Webpart in our Tam Tam Webpart package. Check our Codeplex.com site for updates.
